Kadavu is against the formation of a so-called Christian State in Fiji.
This was one of the resolutions of the Kadavu Provincial Council meeting at the Studio 6 Apartments conference room in Suva last week.
A copy of the meeting’s resolution was handed to the Commissioner Eastern, Luke Moroivalu, last Friday.
He said he was grateftul for the resolution also the fact that they had given their total support for Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and his Government.
He said the council had also formed a committee to monitor economic developments of the island.
Mr Moroivalu said the meeting heard that annually the island netted $64 million from their land and sea resources, but this could was not visibly seen in the developments on the island.
He said most of the land resources proceeds were from the sale of yaqona but most of the money was used in Suva.
Now this committee, he said, would see that the money benefitted the people by building their homes or setting up small businesses for their own benefit.
The meeting also resolved that delegates to the meeting should not be paying freight for cargo brought from the island for the meeting.
Mr Moroivalu said delegates had to pay for their cargo freight.
A delegate from Nabukelevu-i-Ra told the meeting that they had to pay for the firewood and food to be used during the meeting.
He said the trip was paid for by Government as the council was a Government meeting and they should not be paying for the cargo freight.
Another resolution passed was for Government to complete the roading on the island.
The wanted the road to reach Nabukelevu-i-Ra as they were paying $300 to reach Vunisea by sea.
Mr Moroivalu said the meeting also agreed for more prison terms for those planting marijuana on the island.
